The Lattice: 3D Bioprinting Healthcare 3D Printing Newsletter Issue #60

blank blank Sep 08, 2020

About the Lattice this week: We found this interesting looking lattice structure from our Instagram feed a few days ago. This “creature-like” structure can be anything we know, either a cellular structure or a deep-sea organism. But this is simply another brilliant biodesign from @javier_ruiz_biome using a parametric CAD design program.

The Lattice is 3DHEALS weekly recap of the latest developments, expert insights, academic publications, upcoming events in the world of healthcare 3D printing and biofabrication.  Have a cool 3D printed Lattice photo to share with us? Share @3dheals on Instagram or Twitter
